AIC Cross Country

Primary School Champions 2022

Well done to our Year 5 and 6 runners for securing the Primary Aggregate shield with a fantastic performance last Week. The Year 5 age group won their division, while the Year 6s finished 3rd. Combined scores allowed them to take out the shield. Congratulatios to the team of runners and to their coaches.

Under 12 to Open

Each age group ran particularly well and finished in the top half of the field and eventually cemented a third place overall for their efforts. Well down to all and to the coaches for what was a disruptive season.

Please find below the complete AIC Cross Country Season Schedule for 2022. This document contains all information regarding training and trial meets. Cross Country is open to all students across the College from Years 5-12.

Easter Vacation Training Schedule – Year 7-12Year 7-12 Easter Holiday Schedule

The Cross-Country program is split into 2 squads – The Year 5&6 squad and the Year 7-Opens squad. Both squads will be trained separately by different coaches and managers.

We encourage as many students as possible to participate in order to gain personal fitness and/or to represent Villanova College at the annual AIC Cross Country Championships. The benefits of this program will certainly help students in other sporting areas as well as improving their own general well-being. Most Cross Country training sessions are scheduled around rugby and football so boys can do both. We encourage all students to get involved!!!

Please go to the ‘Weekly Fixture’ section to view all game times and venues. General information pertaining to all sports is found in the ‘Locker Room’.

AIC Cross Country is open to all students at Villanova. The cross country season culminates each year with the running of the AIC Cross Country Championships held at Limestone Park, Ipswich during Term 2.

The cross country preseason program commences Term 1 and is viewed as a strong complement to all other sports in the school, providing each individual athlete with a strong aerobic fitness base. The training program is designed and run by highly qualified coaches.

Our coaches offer three sessions a week throughout the season, which are held at Little Langlands Park located across the road from Villanova College. A number of cross country meets are held in the lead up to the official AIC competition in order to give runners race experience and to assist the coaches with team selections.

Villanova has produced many elite cross country runners through the program who have gone on to enjoy great success at state and national levels.

The AIC Cross Country Championship is contested using a team format. A maximum of 12 runners in each age division are eligible to compete from each school, with the fastest six runners earning points for their school. The distances run vary depending on your age level, not year level:

  • Year 5 – 2km
  • Year 6 – 3km
  • 12 years (from Year 7 only) – 3km
  • 13 years – 3km
  • 14 years – 4km
  • 15 years – 4km
  • 16 years – 6km
  • Open – 6km
